The U.S. EPA has a new mandatory record-keeping and reporting rule for nanoscale materials that will likely affect many SEMI | FlexTech & SEMI | MSIG members.  Please pass the information below to the person in your organization responsible for implementing these new requirements.

To better understand the rule, SEMI is hosting a June 1 webcast with participation from an EPA government official.

SEMI Webcast - New Regulatory Requirements for Nanoscale Materials Under the U.S. Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA): Summary and Q/A from the U.S. EPA (June 1, 2017)
In concert with industry partners, SEMI will host an information-sharing webcast on Thursday, June 1, 2017, in which a government official from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will provide a summary and answer questions about new record-keeping and reporting requirements for nanoscale materials / nanomaterials under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Manufacturers, processors, and end-users of substances, chemicals, formulations, and mixtures considered to be nanoscale materials by EPA, are affected by the enacted regulation.
